Hello, I'm Kelcey Dabel.

Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Lactation Counselor

 

I am a wife to a wonderful, smart, and supportive husband, and mother of, so far, two wildly independant and strong willed children. After graduating from highschool I decided to pursue a degree in science with the hopes of going to nursing school. Even as a child I wanted to be a neonatal nurse (or nicu nurse). I always felt a strong urge to help others and be a support for those in need. Shortly into my college career I got pregnant and married all in the same year and decided that my family needed to be my focus. It wasn’t until I had my children that I realized how much I could have benefitted from having a doula and a postpartum doula. Both of my births were memorable for different reasons, but I had to fight for what I wanted and did not leave my births feeling respected, empowered, or equipped for what was to come. It was then that I became passionate about educating, supporting, and helping others so they didn’t go through what I had to go through. I dove in head first to certify with Bebo Mia as a birth and postpartum doula and have been so inspired and encouraged by the awesome women and families I’ve met along the way.

I attended my first birth at the age of 7, and I have attended so many more in between, from home births to hospitals births, and almost birthing my son in the car. I have learned from every experience, training course, book, and figuring out my own personal pregnancy to parenting journey. My goal as a doula is to be an unbiased, non-judgemental resource for people who are trying to figure out the best decisions for them and their families and to be a support along side families in such an impactful and unforgettable journey.

What do I do for fun?

For fun I enjoy spending time with my family. We like to go up to duck creek and camp and disconnect from time to time. I love reading just about any book, but mostly books that help me grow as a person or in my career. I am also a homeschool mom to my preschooler and so far that’s been pretty fun!

I’m honored and excited to be a part of your journey in pregnancy and postpartum and share my passion with you.


Kelcey was incredibly supportive during the prenatal visits and during the birth process. She helped me stay calm and relaxed during the birth. I wish I had hired her sooner!

The knowledge and experience that Kelcey had and shared with us at the prenatal appointments were very helpful during labor.
